Egypt's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Mohamed Idris asserted on Monday July 22, 2019 Egypt's respect for intentional law embodied in the UN Charter.
This came during Egypt's address, on behalf of Foreign Minster Sameh Shoukry, before the Ministerial Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), which kicked off on Sunday in Caracas, Venezuela.
Idris put a special emphasis on observing state sovereignty and non-interference in the internal affairs of UN member states.
He also highlighted Egypt's leading role as the founder of the Non-Aligned Movement as well as its effective contributions to the organization's development to deal with contemporary global challenges.
Shedding light on current regional and international issues, Idris
stressed the need to reach a fair and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian cause without prejudice to the Palestinian people's legitimate rights, including the right to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
He also underlined Egypt's prominent role in UN peace-keeping operations as well as the state's commitment to providing all necessary support to African states, especially in light of its current presidency of the African Union (AU).
He added that the first session of "Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development," scheduled for December, will discuss peace and development issues at the international level.
Themed "Promotion and consolidation of peace through respect for international law," the meeting wraps up on Monday.
Idris attended the Ministerial Meeting of the NAM Committee on Palestine, which was held on the sidelines of the main event.
